The King’s 6th Finger - Written by Jolby and Rachel Roellke, Illustrated by Jolby (Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols)
Found this the other day mindlessly scrolling through Drawn. I love the illustrations, color and story:
It’s about an OCD King named Mortimer who is obsessed with the number 5. He has 5 towers on his castle, 5 knights on 5 horses … he’s obsessed. Until one day he looks down at his hand and discovers that he’s grown a 6th finger.
They funded the project with donations from friends and supporters at kickstarter.com. Their goal was $6,000 and they reached $8,000. Such a good idea for funding, Joy, maybe we should do this?
They are trying to reach $10,000 to get more books printed and to make a donation to a charity for OCD. I like people who use their art powers for good. See their project here.
